About the Library

Hope Library opened its doors in June 1991 in the Hope Town
Office Building, formerly the Hope Elementary School.

Several years ago, the building was renovated to its present 
state, still housing the Town Office and the Hope Library.
Before the renovation could begin, the entire library 
contents were packed up and stored.

During the renovation period, the Hope Library was closed.

After renovations were completed, all library contents were returned,
unpacked and gradually re-shelved, but new opportunities were limited.

This prompted an intense plan to revitalize the Hope Library.
Grants were applied for and awarded, which have provided the
up-to-date technological equipment, new furnishings, new books
and other resources that we now have, as well as other new 
technology and more new books that we will be able to acquire 
and introduce.
